Grey’s Anatomy: The Self-Destruct Button
↳ Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it, I don’t know, maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
Grey’s Anatomy: If Tomorrow Never Comes
↳ A couple hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. “Never leave that till tomorrow,” he said, “Which you can do today.” This is the man who discovered electricity. You’d think more of us would listen to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I’d say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure. Fear of pain. Fear of rejection. Sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you’re wrong? What if you make a mistake you can’t undo?
Grey’s Anatomy: Shake Your Groove Thing
↳ Responsibility. It really does suck. Unfortunately, once you get past the age of braces and training bras, responsibility doesn’t go away. It can’t be avoided. Either someone makes us face it or we suffer the consequences. And still adulthood has it perks. I mean the shoes, the sex, the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. That’s pretty damn good.
Grey’s Anatomy: No Man’s Land
↳ Intimacy is a four syllable word for “Here is my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy.” It’s both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without.
Grey’s Anatomy: Winning a Battle, Losing the War
↳ Whoever said winning wasn’t everything, never held a scalpel.
At some point you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out; they fence you in. Life is messy, that’s how we’re made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here’s what I know: If you’re willing to take a chance, the view from the other side is spectacular.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 3 Deleted Scene [x]
We loved this scene but chose to delete it so that Cristina would not tell Meredith about her engagement until the end of episode 317.
